Possibilities

It turns out I can't pass up pretty sheets at the thrift store. Not because I need sheets, but because sheets are essentially fabric and I like to sew. I recently found these bad boys:

$1.25 for a queen (I think) flat


$3.00 for a queen set

The problem is I have a whole list of things I want to do with them and not enough fabric to do them all! So maybe you can help me decide? Here are my top contenders:

1. make a new duvet cover for the guest room


2. make some pretty scarves


3. make this new bag pattern my mom got me for Christmas


4. make decorative pillow cases for my bed


5. make curtains for my room


Any thoughts? Which ideas do you like best and with which fabric? Or do you have a better idea? Let me hear it! It's so hard to cut it up but I can't wait to make some pretty new things!

  1. Love the fabric! The second one I think my parents still have. I remember seeing it in our guest bedroom a lot and at my grandma's house. I am a scarf and bag girl so those would be my votes ;)

    1. That's so funny! I just thought it was pretty so I grabbed it. :) I'm trying to decide how to get a little bit of everything out of this. :)

  2. Both prints are so pretty! I might favor the top fabric ever so slightly. Would love to see decorative pillowcases and/or curtains, but I'm the type of gal who, when choosing between something pretty for me or my house, almost always goes house.

    1. I think I like the top one a little better, too. That's the one I'm thinking about using for curtains in my room! I think I'll just go for it. :) Thanks!
